I'm impressed once again. It looks totally impeccable. I saw the club and the chickens and thought you were getting ready for dinner.

The first is Napolean II...The second is Josephine..earning her keep..I do love those chickens! The third is Jammies...Jammies wouldn't know what to do with Napolean and Josephine unless they were already in a can and processed into morsels suitable for a queen of her stature...The chickies always have a nice bed of wood shavings to roost in....

Those chickens and the cat look so life-like! That one chicken can ride a bike? Wow! He must be your spokes-chicken!

You're carving has improved quite a bit!

I hate smileys... sorry about that.

BK,

I dunno whatcha got in mind for that wood and ab, but you could always forgettaboutit and mail it all down to me! I could use it

I hear ya about the watch-chickens. My neighbor in CT had a rooster and the thing tried to kill me every time I tried to cut though their yard. Plus, with hens, you get eggs to throw at potential invaders.

It looks like you all had a great time in TN. I'm glad it all worked out.

-Gman

That really is a nice piece BK, even to my untrained eye - seeing it in person illustrates how little pictures do it justice. The detail is excellent.

Thanks Gap, and G-that rooster just got eaten by a hawk and has been replaced by a new rooster named T-Model Ford (After one of my fave blues guys). The panels have been curing inside for four months now, and are actually about to become a full Maori house entranceway carved in the Unaunahi (Auckland area) style with the full PaePae doorcrown. It'll take months to carve but should be ready by Hukilau.

Sweet stuff B.K.. Man I can't wait to see this entrance way piece when you get your chops off of it. You've been busy up there in them woods haven't you. Guess your upping the bar for Hukilau. I know you'll be ready this year;) I guess I better get busy...........

How was the Coontiki? Going back next year????????? Looks like everyone had a great time on the surface. Nice to get away huh.

Poor Chickie!! Maybe you could make some smaller chicken size versions of those war clubs?? Napolean could have kicked that Hawk's ass with one of those!

It'd have to be beak sized! Now...This panel ought to be a nice challenge. 6'3"x19x3. 38 inlays. North Auckland style. The darked out places are the deep carve pattern around the figures. This will be decorated, too. The two Manaia supporting the top (rebirth)figure are pretty neat.. Also, here's a new U'U in progress...

Wow. If I got that far, I'd claim victory and hang it up. Your work is always worth a look, BK. Great stuff.

BK, I have to tell you, I was in Rotorua NZ a few years ago and your carvings rival any that i saw there. I know this is going to be one hell of a beautiful and time consuming piece when you finish.

Stupid questions. Could you explain how you draw your designs? pencil and lots of eraser? Does the design just come to you as your drawing or is there a master plan using traditional shapes? It would take me a lifetime to even draw that out let alone carve it.

By the way, are those paua shells from NZ?

Oh yeah, I'm gonna enjoy this. Post progress so we can see how it evolves. This should be pretty neat.
